Forum: audio_podcast Subject: Metadate missing?

Hi, I've uploaded a ton my show files following the directions. After I did the upload I noticed I missed 5 or so files... I edited the metadata and put in all the correct info and waited over night, figuring it was a lot of files to process and it would take time. Every time I try to go in and edit the items, and change the files, it gives me "Item does not have metadata." I've checked it over and over, all the fields are input and everything looks correct... any help or advice to fix this?

Just want to add. I've tried this on 3 computers, waited for 24 hours, cleared cache on all computers and even tried a computer over my family members house to see if it was mine. I even tried IE 9, 10.. Firefox, chrome and safari. Same problem comes up. Item is missing metadata on http://archive.org/details/RollForInitiative_Vol2 and now http://archive.org/details/RollForInitiativeVol1 -- what is going on????

you should be able to edit both now. the server was temporarily read only.

Still giving me that message. I've cleared cache, tried different browsers... restart my computer... nothing. If I upload all the files that are missing, can you just combine them for me??

again i cannot duplicate the problem. we cannot combine items. i'd recommend starting a new item for new files you want to upload.

I see. Kind of silly to do that and didn't want to waste space, but if that's what you want to do. I see this error a lot here, so I know its not me. There is something wrong with the servers.

no. typically it is one of two problems. Either the server is temporarily offline and is read only (and is usually back online within 24 hours) or the meta.xml file is bloated and breaks because there are too many files in the item.

Those reading this in the future, I waited a fair amount of time thinking maybe the servers need time to update. Still same error message. So the error is on Archive's side somewhere. Oh well.
